Deleting Master data Navigational attribute

Former Member

I have a navigational attribute ZI_OLDMAT (legacy system material number) that we added to Omaterial. It is referencing Omaterial. I now need to change the object to NOT reference OMaterial. Will I be able to delete the attribute, delete the info object, recreate it and add it back to OMATERIAL and set it to Nav on the cubes without causing queries any problems? It will be named the same.

Any ideas on deleting Nav attr?

Also, Does anyone know how to do a where used to find which queries are using this nav attr?

Thanks, Peggy

Hello Peggy,

I believe, this is impossible in this version of BW.

You can not remove Attributes from a Characteristic and this is neccessary if you want to delete and recreate this attribute.

The only workaround I see is to define a new nav. attribute without the reference and add this to the queries and remove the old one from the queries.

Hope this helps
